As the handling of all my documents with +Google Drive is going from the hundreds into the thousands in number, things are getting hard to handle.

No tagging or labels leads to duplicating files into folders for sharing/organizing.

I can only search and sort by modification date, which is a pain when I'm doing my 2014 taxes.

The Location field in Details shows only containing folder instead of full path, which is a right hassle when files are organized in larger hierarchies (like I do in year/month).

Update: I just noticed the full path of a selected file can be seen at the bottom of the screen, so the above is not really a problem!

List view only shows Name, Owner and Modified columns, the last 2 being mostly irrelevant to my use.

I really love the Drive experience and the way it integrates in all my platforms, but as a digital archive it is still pretty basic. The features don't scale well to handle my paper-free life :(

I have transformed my [almost] entire life to digital documents with Evernote.  It scales well, has outstanding search capability, supports unlimited 'tags' and can be accessed from any device.

In the category of dealing with A LOT of personal documents within Google Drive, I just realized that if you copy one document to another folder in your hierarchy, it will still only appear once in your search results!

Even looking at the file details, it declares its two locations correctly - this is very sweet, and I think I can use this for tagging/labelling.

As Drive started syncing my Google Photos to the SSD drive, I quickly started running out of space. This new features solves the problem!
 
Drive for Mac/PC — the app that syncs Google Drive with your computer — now lets you customize which folders and subfolders you sync with your Mac/PC. You’ll also get a handy alert before moving or deleting shared files and folders.

Im Dezember möchten wir ein neues Format testen. In zwei Kurzvorträgen stellt Sebastian Mancke (https://github.com/smancke) und Andreas Kluth (https://github.com/AndreasKl) die Go Programming Language und Apache Kafka vor.

Wir sind bei der tarent solutions GmbH in Bonn zu Gast.

Zu den Vorträgen

Go Programming Language 
Sebastian bringt euch Go näher. Was sind die Stärken von Go? Warum sollte ich mich mit Go beschäftigen? Natürlich darf das klassische Hello World nicht fehlen, doch da sprechen wir doch lieber mit dem Apache Kafka-Cluster.

Apache Kafka
Kafka ist so etwas wie ein Message Bus. Andreas erklärt warum es dann doch kein vollständiger Ersatz für RabbitMQ ist und wo mögliche Einsatzgebiete liegen. Wir setzen einen Test Kafka-Cluster auf und schauen ob wir mit Go und Java Nachrichten verschicken können.

A Dockerfile for git-deps
paul.wellnerbou.de

In Git Minutes #32, Adam Spiers talked about git-deps, which was interesting for me. We don't cherry pick usually nor backport commits, but

Summary: Not the best boarding house for people with small children, or in general. We (a couple w/ baby) stayed here for a week as it's quite close to our family in Berlin. There are however several "pensions" on the same street, and in retrospect we should rather have tried another one. We paid 50 euros a night, 50 of which had to be transferred up front as a deposit. Quality: The first thing that struck us upon entering the yard of the house is that it is very chaotic and messy. Inside the room, we found filthy shelves, a microwave that hadn't been cleaned in ages, and balls of dust under the beds. The room was serviced every day, but the floors were not cleaned, and we reckon all they did was to take out the trash. The shower drain was nearly fully clogged upon arrival. Facilities: The room was small, about the size of a hotel room. There were twin beds that could not be connected properly, and this was a hassle for us as we had a 9-month old baby sleeping between us. Even though the owners informed us in advance that there wouldn't be a problem bringing our baby there, they offered no baby bed or baby chair. Furthermore, the entrance to the apartment was behind some steep steps in the yard, making it near impossible for a single parent to traverse it with a pram. There was a huge TV-set in the room, and even though we didn't use it much, it was somewhat ironic to see only a handful of channels available. The room had a tiny kitchen with an adequate fridge, coffeemaker, micro-wave oven and a kettle, but no stove or oven. The shower had some inconveniantly placed hot-water pipes that I managed to burn my arm on every time I took a a shower. There's no Internet available. Service: We didn't interact much with the owners apart from the day where we managed to lock ourselves out of the apartment. When the owner realized we had left the keys in the lock on the inside, we had to pay 150 euros for getting a locksmith to open it. Overall it was a pretty cheap deal, but at this price level I had expected properly cleaned rooms, as well as some upfront honesty on the keylocks and baby issues.
